Average Rating: 5
Performance is superb. I live in a difficult area for RX TX operation, but coupled to a Moonraker the set easily pulls in Russia, Italy, all UK and in good conditions the USA. Its well made and has some nice touches. I use my radio a lot at night and this one lights all buttons so you can see all the controls easily. it's got a built in morse code trainer which is also useful for those like myself learning CW. All in all a great radio for the price. I highly recommend it to those looking for their first base station or to anyone who wants a compact high performance setup.
